Titans left tackle Lewan ejected for contact with official
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee left tackle Taylor Lewan has been ejected in the first quarter against the Green Bay Packers for contact with an official.
The Titans were lining up for just their second official play with a 7-0 lead when officials threw a handful of flags with Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion going unabated to quarterback Marcus Mariota. Lewan was arguing with Guion with back judge Steve Freeman trying to break up the Titans and Packers.
Lewan appeared on replays to push away Freeman’s hand.
Officials talked over the penalties, then announced their decision. An angry Lewan headed to the locker room and was replaced by Dennis Kelly.
Running back DeMarco Murray capped the drive by throwing a 10-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker for a 14-0 lead.
